Genre busting pop pioneers Goldfrapp have confirmed that the first single to be taken from their brand new album 'Seventh Tree' will be 'A&E', released on Mute on 11th February 2008 (3rd Feb digital). ‘A&E’ and ‘Seventh Tree’ are written by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and were recorded at their own studio deep in the English countryside.
‘Seventh Tree’ follows up the platinum selling and critically acclaimed ‘Supernature’ album which came out in summer 2005 and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. From the captivating electronic balladry of Mercury nominated debut ‘Felt Mountain’ and its distorted-dancefloor follow-up, ‘Black Cherry’, Goldfrapp have consistently surprised and delighted with each new album, adeptly bodyswerving both stereotypes and imitators alike.
If ‘Supernature’ was airbrushed in bold strokes of glitterball glamour, ‘Seventh Tree’ is its sensual counterpoint. Where its predecessor came cocooned in style and sex, ‘Seventh Tree’ emerges gilded in the butterfly colours of an English surrealism shared from Lear to Lennon. It shimmers and shines with the warmth of a hazy summer, an electric whirlpool of sound over which Alison’s glistening voice soars.
Goldfrapp also have a very real beating heart –and it is this rhythm that reverberates throughout the new set of powerful songs on ‘Seventh Tree’.
